Judge Webster’s Ancestors Return to the Webster House

This past weekend two great-granddaughters and one great, great-granddaughter of Judge Webster were guests at the Webster House.  They are the granddaughters and great-granddaughter of Amelia Webster, whose childhood portrait hangs in our parlour – and you could actually see some family resemblances!  Their father was born here at the Webster House before Amelia and her family moved to the house next door.  They invited their uncle, who was born in the house next door and still resides in Bay City, to join them during our wine and cheese social hour.  A few other family members showed up as well.  It was a great reunion and they were all delighted to see that their ancestor’s home has been so beautifully restored and is being shared with so many people.  Our other guests were equally pleased to hear a little history about the Webster family.  The ladies enjoyed their stay so much that they are planning to return when they can stay longer and continue their research of the Webster family.
